Development of Fuel Quality Specification for Ammonia when used as a Motor Vehicle Fuel
A presentation on the steps needed to start the process of developing an ASTM specification for Ammonia when used as a motor vehicle fuel. What does standard consist of? Minimum quality, harmful contaminants, storage, handling, and safety concerns. The need to indentify or develop standardized test methods. The need for participation by producers (production & distribution), users (OEM’s), general interest groups (government, testing labs), and consumers (fleet owners). Appropriate committee: ASTM, SAE or ISO. Timeframe and hurdles. Volunteers to form an exploratory committee. Discussions? Plans to update the group at the 2015 NH3 Fuel Conference.
